For our latest mission, we filled a subway car with identical twins, creating a human mirror. Enjoy the video first and then see below for our report with tons of photos.

Featuring: Twin Agents Barrett, Barry, Bell, Brown, Clyne, Doro, Drinkwater, Kruger, Kruth, Le Boeuf, Port, Rosenblum, Scanlon, Stone, Tattenbaum, Vieyra

Our mailing list has grown so large that we’ve started brainstorming different ways to narrow it down. Last summer, we found out how many redheads we could recruit, and this time around we sent out a request for identical twins. Within a day we heard from over 50 pairs. Most of the twins could not make the day and time of the mission, but we were delighted to have 8 pairs turn out, nearly all of whom had never participated in one of our missions before.

We actually did this mission a second time a few weeks later. The first attempt was a total success in terms of how it unfolded live, but our video footage wasn’t as good as we knew it could be. It’s very difficult to capture audience reaction to a mission like this in the subway while still keeping our cameras hidden. We invested in some wireless microphones and a new button camera and gave it a second shot.

The second set of twins

Only two of the original sets of twins (the Vieyra and Port sisters) could make the second mission. They were joined by 8 new sets who couldn’t make the first date. It was nice to involve more people. We even had some high school twins this time around. The Krueger brothers weren’t present for the group photo above, but did make it on the train.

We had some fun taking posed photos

I instructed the twins via email to do everything they could to look identical. They did an awesome job dressing exactly alike and matching accessories. It really was impossible to tell them apart, especially when meeting 8 pairs at the same time.

The Barrett twins both had iPhones

The Drinkwater twins matched several accessories

The Port twins

The Doro twins

The Rosenblum twins

I explained the mission to everyone. We would get on the 6 train at the start of the line at Brooklyn Bridge and the twins would sit on either side of the car, directly across from their sibling. Once in place, their job would be to mirror each other as closely as possible. If one scratches his head, so should the other. If anyone asked them what was going on, they should claim not to notice anything unusual and not to even be able to see their sibling.

Even before the mission started, we were attracting tons of attention. People were running up to us and snapping photos of the twins at the meeting point. Several folks stopped to gawk as we walked to the subway. The hot dog vendor above couldn’t stop laughing.

The start of the first mission was particularly funny to watch because our agents weren’t able to get every seat in a row. There was a man quietly reading on the bench, and our agents surrounded him.

He sat and read his entire journey and exited not knowing what had gone on around him. To be fair, there were several people seated on train who didn’t notice at first what was happening. If you were only looking at one side of the car it seemed perfectly normal. It was easy to see if you were standing, but those seated had to look to their sides to get what was going on.

A woman quietly smiles

This couple was from Sweden. They were among the first the notice the mirror, and immediately started laughing and taking photographs. The woman theorized that there must be some sort of twin conference happening in town.

People coming down the stairs realize an army of twins is passing by

As with most of our missions, we got all sorts of reactions from all sorts of people. Most folks laughed quietly to themselves. A few got really excited and started asking others on the train if they knew what it was. Some were bold enough to try to talk to the twins. Some pretended not to notice and kept to themselves. Some genuinely didn’t notice.

Agent Cobalt recalled one particularly good reaction:

One of the best reactions I saw unfortunately was not captured on video to my knowledge- I think it was on the first time around and a tanned middle aged woman with permed hair and a rough makeup job was sitting on the train completely surrounded by twins. She sat there for quite awhile without noticing. Then she looked up and must have seen it in the reflection of the window across from her because she did a startled quadruple take to the left and right. At first she let out an uncomfortable laugh but at that early stage nearly everyone on the train was either a hidden camera person or a twin and no one reacted to her confusion. This made her noticeably more uncomfortable so she got up and moved to another part of the car and stared at the floor till her stop. She certainly had the look of someone questioning their sanity- an awkward testament to the stellar job all the twins did in coordinating their outfits, accessories, hair, and actions- the Rosenblum twins had the same song queued on their iPods- that’s the level of dedication these agents had.

The freaked out woman

The second time around was just as much fun.

This woman and her husband were really excited. “I thought it was a mirror,” she told me. The both decided to get to the bottom of it and talk to the twins, but our agents stayed in character and acted like they were crazy. It was fun to watch people like them get on the train and slowly notice the twins. At first they might just see one or two pairs, but then they’d look to the other side of the car and see seven more pairs.

This woman saw the mirror as soon as she stepped on the train

You may recognize the Stone twins from their appearances on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. They’re a stand up comedy duo.

Of all of the people we encountered, the women pictured above were our favorites. They could not stop laughing and talking to everyone about what was going on. The woman on the left did a literal double take when she first saw the mirror (which you can see in the video.) I sat across from them with my button camera recording as they tried to figure it all out.

As we were waiting to board a downtown train after the mission was over, two guys were going crazy across the platform, waving and laughing.

Mission Accomplished

    wooow this improv is awesome ?

  3. H. Rosenblum says:

    One of the best parts of the day was walking around the streets of NY with my twin and the other sets of twins all dressed a like – from the giggles to the doublemint comments and even twin convention theories, anywhere twins go dressed a like people sure get amused!

  4. Emily says:

    oh man this is amazing!

  5. car says:

    wow, this is amazing! you are awesome.
    i wish i could do something like that here ):

    take care!

  6. Robbie says:

    Stone and Stone–I knew it!

  7. Will Hines says:

    Very cool! Somehow, the Duane Reade bag is an awesome detail for a set of twins to have on the train.

  8. Ryan says:

    that was awesome, everytime I think you guys cant top a past mission you come up with another!!!!

    Well done!!!

  9. ohmytodd says:

    you guys always have good clean fun. this was great.

  10. ohmytodd says:

    you guys always have good clean fun. this was great.

  11. Coffeekid1 says:

    Aw, now I wish I had one of those twin people. A mission would have so been worth having to share my toys growing up. Great job!

  12. Kirk says:

    Love it.

    Anything that invokes a sense of delight and wonder in people is really terrific.

  13. troyst says:

    Haha. And that’s why I ride the 6.

  14. plummm says:

    Oh man! This is so fantastic! I’m so sad I missed seeing it in action… I was hoping to participate in and/or witness an IE prank while I’m in New York for the summer.

  15. Jave says:

    Wait, stop everything! — why is there snow in the shot of the vendor?!

    Anyway, that was awesome!

  16. Anya says:

    This is THE BEST of all of your improvs and I have been a fan ever since the rooftop U2 concert.

  17. JJ Teshima says:

    Wowwwww, You Guys Have a Very Good Ideas to do those Video , Congrats to all Of You……and I hope some day Join with You guys in one of those crazy Missions. THX a lot for Give those videos to US.

  18. Melissa says:

    Very, very funny. Always a pleasure! Thanks for making my day!

  19. ...tom... says:

    Ya know, for being a random collection of twins . . .you got some sweet looking participants.


  20. Renata says:

    I always wished I had a twin, now I know why. My inner conscious was trying to tell me something!

    Awesome job, guys. Keep the missions coming!

  21. Jeff Lin says:

    Excellent use of the growing mailing list. Bravo, bravo.

  22. Adnan says:


  23. Great job IE! Keep it up. My friends and I always enjoy y’all’s hi-jinks and wish we could participate. __:)__ NY is one of the best places for this stuff to work so well.

  24. Jeremy says:

    @Jave, I don’t think that’s snow, but rather overexposed concrete. Since the foreground is the dark area under the vendor’s umbrella, the aperature is opened up and as a result overexposes the more brightly-lit background. This could have been avoided by using fill-in flash (when you force your camera to flash, even when taking photos outside).

  25. Omg! It doesn’t get much more amusing than that! I wish I could brave the city crowds to come down and see this stuff in person some day, or participate! It looks like you all had a ton of fun!

  26. Janna says:


  27. Neville Street says:

    You guys are good… very good. What a hoot!

  28. mary lynch says:


  29. Claudia says:

    This was a brilliant mission! It’s times like this when I wish I was a twin. I can’t wait for the next mission!

  30. Da*bot says:

    Who pays you guys for all this??

  31. Vickie Davis says:

    Great fun! You folks do the best stuff.

    I first saw you on “This American Life” and have followed you ever since.



  32. PaulieB says:

    this is pretty funny

    i probably wouldn’t notice if i were there though

  33. Lori Odhner says:

    I have identical twin girls and would love to be part of one of these. In fact there are identical twin boys next door too, and non identical ones across the street, and grown identical twins up the street.

  34. Jennifer says:

    @Jeremy and Jave: Looks like snow to me…on the tree branches, etc. Also doesn’t explain the winter coat and hat the vendor is wearing. The folks in the photos aren’t exactly wearing summer wear either.

    Looks like a late spring mission in NYC to me!

  35. katie says:

    it’s not snow although it was pretty chilly that day. we were under scaffolding when i took the pic so the background is super over exposed! =)

  36. Fred says:

    This awesome, only in New York, you’ll never see this in Portland Oregon’s Max system….uplifting story thanks.

  37. Fats says:

    Stupid… being… a…. fraternal twin!

  38. Eoin says:

    It’s pretty uninteresting huh? I mean what a waste of time, the reactions from the public were not impressive, dramatic, or worthy of anyone’s attention really. What a waste of time for everyone involved. I felt embarrassed after watching this.

  39. Aud1073cH says:

    This would also be awesome in a large public square, at a public building, or near a fountain, where the area is laid out symmetrically, and people can just hang out.

  40. Berklie says:

    Wow… that’s great. So fun.

  41. Jen says:

    Creepy. I’ve got triplets, and I do everything in my power to convince my identical girls not to dress alike.

    I guess that at least these twins got their 15 minutes of fame.

  42. jim says:

    That first lady was pretty funny. “Maybe there’s a twin conference.”

  43. It’s always interesting how people react when their surroundings are transformed in an unfamiliar way. What youget is pure human feelings. Bravo to Improv Everywhere for creating these events which allow us to get a glimpse of humanity in a subway.

  44. wow says:

    Wow! A old fashion freak out!

  45. Mandy says:

    Im a twin and that scares ME!
    hahaha thats is too cool.

  46. Twin lover says:

    The Port twins are frickin’ HOT!!

  47. JUDE says:

    the pic of the hot dog vendor has him in a 1/2 ski mask and winter coat–no leaves on trees and appears tree limbs are covered with a white powder- if u claim photo was shot in spring, why the heavy overcoat?

  48. t1mmy says:

    Two good to be true.

  49. Ad Douche says:

    whoah! this is the coolest thing i’ve ever seen.

  50. David says:


  51. Jess says:

    Man, I wish I gould have been there. You guys need to stop doing your missions on Saturdays.

  52. Oscar says:

    Instant classic. Good job, guys!

  53. gosh@netn says:

    So pointless, why don’t you do something worthwhile with your life than bringing us this shite?

  54. Jack says:

    How great is it that the Drinkwater twins showed up with matching drinks of water?

  55. Wow. That made for some beautiful photographs.

    I’m sure the twins didn’t want to spend all day executing your cruel plans, but there sure are a lot of possibilities with these matched pairs. You could freak out cab drivers by having them drive by (or pick up) matching pairs of cab-hailers.

    Or even on the sidewalk, if you passed five people, then walked past the SAME five people a second time, would you even notice?

    Bravo on an excellent new mission!


  56. SK says:

    Loved it and enjoyed the good fun. Just let me know when and where I can do something next Nov. in the Big A.

  57. Tim says:

    Really creative. Really really impressive!

  58. tomiddes says:

    As an identical twin, I can really appreciate this! It’s priceless! Good job. I love you guys.

  59. celsius says:

    well played ie!

  60. Dan Lee says:

    aww man… wish i had a twin :D

  61. Alyson says:

    I’m not a twin, but I would have loved to tag along just to capture people’s reactions. NYC is absolutely the best place in the world for these kinds of pranks. Occasionally I hang out in Times Square or in the village and just watch tourist’s reactions to the typical NYC craziness. I really like the people who try so friggin hard to play it cool but you know are like dying inside! Lol! And of course, there’s always the people who wear their emotions on their sleeves so they hold nothing back! Gotta love this city! :)

  62. Myself says:

    I think the video link is broken. I clicked play and all it did was show ads. It annoyed me, so I left.

  63. jad says:

    Pretty stupid.. pranks are supposed to be subtle, not obvious. Just as the lady said “there must be a twin conference going on”. Yeah, most people would assume that and you get no reaction except staring. Staring can be accomplished by wearing a bikini.. big deal, not very creative, VERY oversold.

  64. Dude says:


    “This made her noticeably more uncomfortable so she got up and moved to another part of the car and stared at the floor till her stop. She certainly had the look of someone questioning their sanity- an awkward testament to the stellar job all the twins did in coordinating their outfits, accessories, hair, and actions”

    I guess it’s not possible that she was thinking, “great–I’m smack in the middle of some stupid artsy-fartsy psychological experiment some dope on the internet came up with. I have to get home from my 40/hr week job and take care of my kids because I don’t have the free time to jerk people around for my esoteric enjoyment.”

  65. Liza says:

    Great job! Very creative.

    P.S.: The men had no shirts, when will we have a women only mission?!

  66. Matthew W. S. Bell says:

    I think your video needs deinterlacing

  67. shellirae says:

    the krugers are hott!

  68. Zesty says:

    So Cool…

  69. Nick Serota's doppelganger says:

    Hi there,

    This is a great project. What are the chances of getting a blown up print of one of these for my home?

    Many thanks

  70. Hacker says:

    What about a random costume party in an office?

  71. jesus says:

    is it just me, or is it not improv if they planned it…damn hacks

  72. kelly says:

    Too COOL!!!!!

  73. Katie says:

    I watched it on Good Morning America this morning, and I was like, “Oh my gosh, they got on the news again! I’m so proud!”

  74. JesterJoker says:

    This is glorious. I love it. :)

  75. Jackie says:

    Very cool! You guys are just so amazing & creative! I think if I went on that subway, I’d have thought I walked into one of those weird Japanese ghost horror movies.

  76. Tman says:

    Hey Chicago- Naperville Ill has the highest occurences of Multiple births, couldn’t someone out there try and do something bigger or even with Triplets? Just a thought!.

  77. Baddy says:

    Sorry, but this was only so-so … I’ve seen Improv Everywhere do better public improv actions. Plus, the whole ‘twins’ thing was rendered much better here:

    Still, keep up the good work — I enjoy watching your videos.

  78. Resa says:

    The prank is on Yahoo right now!

  79. Sophia says:

    You made the front page of Yahoo. As soon as I saw it, I knew it had to be IE so I came here to confirm. LOL!

  80. Renee says:

    i love this. i’m really eager to participate in a mission .. but i never see any ads or notices. how can i sign up?

  81. Katie says:

    Wow, you’re on the front page of Yahoo!

  82. leonardo says:


  83. Jim says:

    Uhm…I don’t get it.

  84. Atland says:

    Is funny, let’s try at Hong Kong. :)

  85. Jackie says:

    I was thinking it’d be more interesting if they got either a group of Japanese or Asian looking twins in Japanese schoolgirl outfits, or Japanese schoolgirl twins in Japan to do this trick.

    It’d be even more creepy, if you’re familiar with the film Suicide Circle, where a group of Japanese schoolgirls die from a planned suicide by jumping in front of a train.

  86. kyle says:

    How is this improv? It took planning and it wasn’t “improvised” and after everything it really isnt all that great now you guys are just trying to hard and making fools of your self

  87. I Tankovskaja Tatyana from Russia Moscow. Human Mirror – you idea GALLANTLY! Once again SUPER!

  88. Webmast says:

    Fantastic!!! :-)

  89. Tony says:

    This is what i call ‘cooooooooooooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll”

  90. Now THIS is brilliant. Very creative indeed. Charlie Todd, you REALLY know how to mess with people’s minds, don’t you?

  91. Nicolinho82 says:

    Awesome Idea….Thanks for the laugh!!!!

  92. Amazing, very nice ;)

  93. irfan says:

    it such a amazing

  94. Iliko says:

    Excellent! Fabilisous idea!

  95. federico says:

    hi im a student of nyfa i need twins for my thesis film where can i found them?

  96. dan says:

    great idea. love what you guys do. i think you should do one where everyone gets onto a subway car with a large bushy plant, and by the time it is really filled up it looks like a jungle inside

  97. Jenny says:

    If I was on that train, I wouldn’t even notice all the twins.

  98. Melissa says:

    I’m excited about this. I was wearing my Improv Everywhere t-shirt the day this was on Good Morning America (Which I got very excited over) and I just saw a link to it on another website. Improv Everywhere is taking over the world! Yes!

  99. Noel says:

    You have left me thoroughly impressed.

  100. vim says:

    haha, love your idea… coolness!

  101. JKoss says:

    That was amazing.

    I helped at a charity show last May, that included the Stone twins.

  102. artmom says:

    What wonderful creative thinking! No porn, no obscenity; mostly positive irony aimed at being humorous. This is what should be top news: attempts to show how humans can relate in fun and clever ways; showing how we are unique and alike, at the same time. God bless.
    P.S. Leave the nose picking for late night TV. Thanks.

  103. Yurievi says:

    I love the movement and the will of the people participating.
    i would love to see this in Mexico city.

  104. Rosie says:

    Oh wow!!! I’m an identical twin, and I would have LOVED to have seen this and participated! I live in Denver, though… Maybe my sister and I should attend one of the twin conferences. I LOVE the photos!!!

  105. Jeff says:

    Poor woman who had a hard time dealing with it. I guess you guys just think that’s part of the fun, right?

  106. Jeff Young says:

    Oh dear lords! If that’s Cathy and Emily Vieyra, and it sure looks like them, can you -please- bounce a “hello, small world!” from Jeff, the Asian kid who worked in the Bayside library with them…back in 1990? Feel free to pass along my e-mail if they’d like to say hello. :}

  107. Jeff Young says:

    …(assuming that they’re the ones in the white coats at the front of one of the photos) … ‘…you’re the last people I expected to be in on this sort of amazingly funny gig.’ Kudos!
    -Jeff again

  108. Katie says:

    Note to self- Go to NYC and ride the 6 Train non-stop for two weeks.

  109. great. just great.

  110. Yuna says:

    So Interesting!!

  111. Sami says:

    brilliant! i only wish i could be a part of IE. what you guys do is amazing.

  112. paresh says:

    amazing twins.

  113. this is a realy funny and i think you should do a video about sizes piper

    i have a brother that is my twin. And i wish it was a girl so we could be a like

  114. Joolz says:

    In Buenos Aires there’s a a mirror street called Rivarola Passage. Each façade is exactly the same as the one in the other sidewalk. Check it out.$hey_its_a_bilingual_blog_scroll_down/2008/07/14/elogio_de_la_simetria__the_symmetry_song

  115. Moinur says:

    nice… very nice

  116. arie says:

    whahahhah….i can’t stop laughing right now!!!

  117. noob says:

    roflmao xD

  118. Darrell Wilson says:

    I had a twin brother, who passed away and to see this mission warmed my heart. Being a twin is special and my brother and I often would fool people. Tell you’re twins to ask for a dollar when ever they hear this question; Are you Twins? They’ll know what mean. Thanks for giving me a pleasant memory of my bother Dale.

  119. Park says:

    So hot !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love this mission ^^

  120. Ciprian says:

    I am deeply impressed. Wow. You guys are geniuses in my book. Keep up the good work.

  121. Myke says:

    WHoa! haha this is really interesting!

  122. IE Junkie says:

    For an encore, take ’em all to Yankee Stadium next Monday, when the Yanks play the Minnesota Twins.

  123. Instant classic CT. Priceless.

  124. DD says:


  125. Pete in Paris says:

    Cool but you’re not really messing with people’s minds if you are blatantly filming them and giving them a heads up that something is going on… Kind of defeats the purpose, no?

  126. omar says:

    im thinking doing this in my own country…funny doh.really important is, people start to realize how interesting this world can be..keep it up

  127. subramaniam shankar says:

    Fabulous original thinking and phenomenal execution of vision of the artist and the participants did a splendid job by being themselves

  128. J. says:

    To Pete in Paris – it was totally undercover. (re – “Cool but you’re not really messing with people’s minds if you are blatantly filming them and giving them a heads up that something is going on… Kind of defeats the purpose, no?”)

  129. Dude that’s f**king trippy

  130. christy says:

    One of the coolest things i have ever seen!

  131. Gerald Weber says:

    Absolutely the fricking funniest thing I have ever seen our heard of. Whoever came up with this it was an absolutely hilarious idea! :-)

  132. AlexD says:

    This Was Great! !taerG saW sihT

  133. Duffman says:

    Is there an improv everywhere set up in England?
    If there isnt you should try to get one set up and to Improv Everywhere Global.

  134. Your ideas are fantastic. I really like to watch your pages…Inspiration overseas.

  135. Russ says:

    Honestly… you guys continue to amaze me. This is plain brilliant. Congrats.

  136. Krunk Kelly says:

    Original idea… Pretty amusing. Good Job guys!

  137. Nathan says:

    An interesting experiment, but the fact that you are excited that your prank may have caused someone to have a disturbing mental episode is worrying, and highly problematic. I’m not saying this was stupid and frivolous, like some, but there comes a time to drop the act (e.g., if it might be harming someone inadvertently). Art is important, but not so important that nothing else matters.

  138. Eneza says:

    Great! Great! WAHAHAHAHAH

  139. Fad Aqe says:

    heyyy people nice job…
    keep it up, you are really awesome!.

    take care and God bless you.

  140. That is fantastic! !citsatnaf si tahT

  141. Cyn says:

    This is so awesome! I wish I was on the 6 train during this time but wow I’d be surprised if I saw them on my next ride =] Great project!

  142. chippy says:

    That one set of twin’s pants don’t match.

  143. Ez says:

    This restores my faith in humanity. Beautifully conceived and perfectly executed! I love it!
    Thank you!


  144. Matt says:

    you guys rock!

    I can’t wait to see what else you come up with.

    Maybe one where everyone (large numbers) brings a camera and simultaneously takes shots of random passerby’s or someone in the group as if they are celebrities?

    Like someone walking down the street randomly and everyone starts coaching them like “yeah, keep walking that way, thats great. oh, thats an excellent shot” but with 20-30+ photographers?

  145. Terence says:

    Your activities have been logged and tracked.

    Nice job.

  146. husker51 says:

    I think you should combined 2 parnks. how about 2k9 no pants with twins? you could really get some good reactions with that. eample. Q. whats going on here? A. our parents couldn’t afford the whole outfit, because they had to buy 2 of everything. And I’m sure you can take it from there.

  147. Alex says:

    The guys across the track, waving at the very end of the article… Are they twins as well? I can’t tell from the picture.

  148. Marc says:

    How refreshing! This was not only an interesting sociological experiment but a wonderful bit of humor as well. The ones who found the experience as a switch from the mundane experience of riding the subway system in NYC will probably never forget it.

  149. Rodney S Garnes (Barbados) says:

    It was really great

  150. Chili says:

    fantastic stuff. try this one. Separate the twin pairs and create a “deja vu”

  151. Valdemar says:

    Scary but cool. Definately cheaper than drugs. ;P

  152. Gerry says:

    Great fun! I feel sorry for the miserable gits who were not amused by your video.

  153. etantao says:

    Another awesome improv, great work once again!

    As usual, improveverwhere delivers! Well done folks.

    Pretty weak execution. This idea could’ve been hilarious. But all we get a few reactions that only be described as “slightly confused.” As if they saw a cow in the street, kind of weird, but so what. They are left to conclude there has to be a simple explanation. The reaction footage must’ve have been weaker than it appears, as even editing and a music bed didn’t spice it up. But then again, that music bed was awful.

    OMG. I love Improv Everywhere. Very creative and cool. I think it’s great that you make people smile and laugh and think. It’s great to briefly escape from the real world sometimes.

  166. Andrew says:

    I was introduced to this website by a fellow that was hosting me in Germany during my travels. I really enjoy what you folks are doing. The kind of effort it takes to coordinate these kinds of videos is immense, and I’d like to that you for taking the time to bring these together.

  167. Anna says:

    And a good one too!

    It’s to bad it doesn’t let me click the thumbs up button over and over and over again.

  175. Shane says:

    I’ve always wondered if you could make a McDonalds girl question her sanity by having dozens of people, one after the other all order their meals like a badly overdubbed chinese kung fu movie. You know, where the mouth and words are all out of time. In my dream you would need at least 50 people to get her to start thinking she was losing it, but it would make for a fun experiment. I figure that for the few people, she would likely think it was just people being dumb, but by the time you get to fifty or so, she’d have to start thinking “maybe it’s not them. Maybe it’s me?”

  176. Lotem says:

    you guys rock!!!
